The rapid growth of eBook sales and distribution channels is making it imperative for publishers to develop smart and aggressive digital business strategies or miss out on revenues from the fastest-growing segment of the market. Turner Publishing is making a rapid entrance into the iBookstore and other digital retail channels by taking advantage of a program developed by Apple and Jouve that enables publishers to make their catalogs available on the iPad and iPhone at minimal cost. Learn how Turner is leveraging the set of services offered under the program to take a wide range of source materials—including out-of-print and out-of-copyright works—and push them out into the digital marketplace.

This session is sponsored by Jouve
